Diy Felt Magnolia Leaf Garland

3 Materials
3 Hours

The other day I was scrolling Pinterest and came across a pretty felt magnolia leaf garland. I figured it couldn't be that hard to make one, so I did!

I'm going to show you a simple and easy way to create one too! This project is time consuming due to creating the leaves; but it's worth it!!

The cost of this project is based on what I paid for the felt. You may be able to find it cheaper elsewhere.

You will need some craft felt, scissors, and a hot glue gun. I found my felt at Joann's craft store.

I decided to create a leaf template from some cardboard I had on hand. This is what I used to create my felt leaves.

I found using a paint marker was the easiest way to trace the leaves on felt. I'm sure a sharpie would work great too.

I traces as many leaves as I could on each felt piece. I then used scissors to cut them each out.

After the leaves were cut out; I added a small strip of hot glue to the bottom end of each leaf.

Once the glue was applied, I pinched the end of the leaf together, as shown. I held it a few seconds to make sure the glue firmly held the sides together. This created a small "stem."

After creating the stem. I added a small amount of glue down the end of the leaf.

Once glue was applied down the side (a small ways up from the stem; then down the side of the stem,) I attached the leaf to another.

I continued to attach each leaf using hot glue. After attaching about three leaves, I created a pattern. This helped me figure out where to connect each leaf as I went along. There really is no specific pattern to doing this. It is personal preference.

This is what the back of the garland looked like as I continued attaching and finishing it.

You can make the garland as long or short as you like. I wanted something that would work on my table, as well as on my mantle.

You can dress the garland up however you please. Here I added some pretty flowers.

Here is another way I added some pretty touches. I used a dough bowl, placed the garland across it and the table, then added flowers to the dough bowl.

It just adds a nice touch for any season!
